Celimene and the Cardinal

by Jaquas Rampal
adapted by Ranjit Bolt
directed by Charles Newell

Sep 15, 1995 — Oct 22, 1995

“Resnik and Gudahl bring not only superb individual technique but a shared emotional history as artists that enriches their complex, contradictory characters. They’re pure joy to watch and listen to, especially Resnik’s Celimene, a smart and opinionated woman in a society that doesn’t value that combination of attributes. Gudahl’s Alceste, meanwhile, is an eloquent, charismatic reactionary…” -Reader

The irreconcilable lovers Celimene and Alceste are reunited 20 years after the conclusion of Moliere’s classic, The Misanthrope. The mature seductress and the passionate egoist play a dangerous game of power and domination as they struggle to reveal their true emotions to one another.
